Las Vegas is a resort city of almost 642,000 residents that’s famous for its casinos and as a draw for the world’s greatest entertainers who frequently take up long residencies in its glittering venues. The 2020 census shows almost 15% of the city’s population are aged 65 and older. They also know it to be a city of museums, great restaurants, beautiful parks and shopping districts suitable for most tastes and incomes.

More than 60 assisted living facilities have safe and comfortable homes for seniors who need a little help with common tasks, such as managing their medications and personal grooming. They also offer ample opportunities for residents to make new friends within their age groups and participate in facility-organized events and trips. The typical cost for placement in assisted living in Las Vegas is $3,650 per month, which is $100 below the state average and $850 lower than the country overall. For many seniors, below-average fees are another reason to move to a city internationally renowned for its vibrancy and wealth of attractions.

This guide considers the benefits and drawbacks of living in Las Vegas. It also reviews care costs and lists some helpful resources.

COVID-19 Rules for Assisted Living in Las Vegas

Since most COVID-19 rules for Assisted Living Communities and other Senior Living Facilities are set at the state level, you can view the specific rules for your state on our Guide to Assisted Living in Nevada. Keep in mind that every community has specific policies that they put in place to protect their residents, so you should contact your local community for more information. Additionally, you can contact your local Area Agency on Aging to learn more – find contact information here.

What to Consider About Assisted Living in Las Vegas

The Division of Health’s Bureau of Health Care Quality and Compliance is responsible for regulating, monitoring and licensing assisted living facilities in Nevada. Its tasks include investigating the legal and financial backgrounds of license applicants and carrying out regular inspections of approved facilities to ensure they continue to uphold standards. The Bureau also has the power to revoke licenses.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Las Vegas

  • Las Vegas has an average cost of living index of 111.6, which is a little above the state figure of 110.5 and the national index of 100. Transportation and housing costs appear to be major factors, although the latter is unlikely to concern seniors in assisted living too much. They may be more interested in the health care index, which, at 92.3, is below the national mark and slightly lower than normal for Nevada. 
  • Helping Hands of Vegas Valley is a charity that provides free transportation for Nevada residents aged 60 and older. It can transport seniors throughout Vegas Valley in vehicles suitable for all passengers, including wheelchair users. Rides can be for medical appointments, grocery shopping and general errands. Although frail seniors have priority, the charity welcomes all residents who qualify.
  • The dry, sunny climate in Las Vegas is popular with retirees, particularly those with respiratory conditions that may be affected by humid heat. Rainfall is low — typically 5 inches per year — and temperatures range from an average of 37 degrees Fahrenheit in January to 104 degrees Fahrenheit in July. There are almost 300 days of sunshine, which, along with the absence of hurricanes, earthquakes and tornadoes, makes the city one of the most popular retirement locations in the Southwest.
  • Property and violent crime in Las Vegas is slightly more common than average for Nevada. However, data shows much of the city’s crime occurs in specific areas, such as The Strip and neighborhoods in and around West Las Vegas. Generally speaking, residential locations further from the tourist hotspots tend to have lower levels of crime. One of the benefits of assisted living communities is that they typically include surveillance and security systems.
  • Las Vegas and neighboring cities are home to many health care facilities offering the full spectrum of medical care. Sunrise Hospital & Medical Center specializes in cardiology, burn care and urology, Summerlin Hospital has a cancer center and rehabilitation unit, and the Valley Hospital Medical Center has neurologists, orthopedic surgeons and stroke specialists.

Paying for Assisted Living in Las Vegas

At $3,650 per month, an assisted living placement in Las Vegas can save a senior around $1,200 annually when compared to the state average of $3,750. Data from the 2021 Genworth Cost of Care Survey also shows Las Vegas to be significantly more affordable than the typical U.S. city, where fees average $4,500.

The Cost of Assisted Living in Nearby Cities

Las Vegas is the least costly city in Nevada for assisted living. Its nearest rival is Carson City, where a senior can normally expect to pay around $3,820. Fees are much higher in Reno, where seniors consider $4,250 to be the norm. The Genworth Survey shows the only city within a 2-hour radius of Las Vegas with lower fees is St. George, Utah, where the average is $3,500.

The Cost of Other Types of Senior Care

At an average of $3,650, it’s substantially more affordable than homemaker and home health aide services, both of which cost around $4,767 per month. Nursing homes cost considerably more, usually $8,273 for a semiprivate room and $10,646 for a private one. Only adult day centers have lower average fees, at $1,820.
